Lynn Ruane is a Senator for the University of Dublin constituency in Seanad Éireann. She is an activist and campaigner on issues of justice and equality.
In our interview she talks about the need for belonging regardless of the stage of education the person is at and how school and colleges can support this need.
Lynn talked to us about her experience with the education system and what prompted her to return to education. She also spoke openly about the barriers she encountered in education and how she persevered none the less and who inspired her.
Lynn talked about the the importance of young people having a role model they can relate to and also how important it is to have events like Féilte. We also asked her about the impact she hopes to make as senator.
